I Won the Legoland Lottery

Joshua, Alex, and Amanda's class went on a field trip to Legoland last Friday. They needed one extra mom to go on the trip with them. So, what's the best way to pick that mom?

Put all the mom's names (that said they could go) in an envelope and pick one out.

And who was the winner?

Yesiree Bob......It was me!

Now that is a great thing considering my kids still want me to hang out with them. In first grade it's cool to have your mom with. Also, last fall Alex was crying because I had never gone on a field trip with her but I had been on a couple for Isaac.

I learned that when on a bus with 22 - 1st graders and 27 - 2nd graders, the noise is at a level that I am just not accustomed to. Even Amanda told me it was way too noisy. Also, be prepared to experience some unpleasant smells.

For some reason, even though I have had 4 kids following me around for many years now, I often get nervous when given other people's children to be in charge of. Why do they think I am responsible enough to keep track of 6 First graders.....even if 3 of them are mine. Thankfully they were very good and they stuck to me like glue. Even my own kids did, which NEVER happens!

Here are the six children that I had the pleasure of spending the day with.

Sorry for the bad quality of pictures. Ever since I've had my new computer I haven't had a good way to download my pictures to my blog. I might have to break down and do it the way I used to. Just another one of those things to add to my list to figure out.

Have you used "Windows Live Writer"? You can download it for free and it's so much easier to post and add pictures or videos and resize the pics etc. Just google it and you'll find it. I use it and it's great! Way less download time...almost instant.

I've never used it before, I'll have to look into it. I used to use Picasa and transfer my pics that way. I was just trying to keep from downloading another program and having pictures in another place but I don't think I have much of a choice.
